EQUIPMENT REQUIREMENTS FOR BOX LACROSSE
The Nepean Knights Minor Lacrosse association is a member of the Ontario Lacrosse Association, and as such our players are required to wear the equipment required by our governing body. For Jr. Paperweight players will only require some basic lacrosse or hockey equipment: hockey helmets with facemask, mouth guard, shoulder pads, gloves, athletic support and cup, and elbow pads. A lacrosse stick and indoor running shoes are also required. Paperweight, Tyke, Pee Wee, Novice, Bantam and Midget divisions require the same equipment along with lacrosse arm pads and kidney and back protectors. Field/Box lacrosse gloves offer excellent protection and flexibility. Short cuff hockey gloves can be used, but they don’t offer the same grip or flexibility.
